BJC Health has recently gone through the process of becoming an NDIS registered provider. We are excited!
What does this mean?
So what is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is the new way of providing support for Australians with disabilities, along with their family and carers.
How will we help?
BJC is a rheumatology centre, armed with a team of Rheumatologists, Dieticians, Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists and Massage Therapists. We believe that any chronic condition deserves a high quality multi-disciplinary approach to care and hope to make it somewhat easier for clients by providing these services under the one roof. We try our best to deliver a smooth, tailored and holistic health care journey to those that walk thorugh our door. At BJC, our allied health team will endeavour to help NDIS clients make meaningful improvements to their lives through building capacity, improving function, health and wellbeing.
